Sculpture & drawings selected from 50 years of the artist's work

About

Then & Now looks at recent work by Dave King alongside sculptures and drawings made over the past 50 years. King completed postgraduate studies at the Slade School of Fine Art and showed in the Serpentine Gallery in 1970, since when much of the distinctive character of his work and visual ideas has evolved through drawing. This exhibition includes constructed wall-based wood and metal sculptures shown in the 11th Paris Biennale in 1980.

Alongside art school teaching and his own studio and exhibition practice, King has engaged with the long history of sculpture and the ever evolving range of contemporary 3D practice. He co-founded the Shippon Gallery to show alongside artists whose work he admires. This is his first solo exhibition there.

King’s biography includes major commissions and projects in North America, Eire and the UK. His sculptures and drawings are in public and private collections including the British Council and the Arts Council. He was recently commissioned to make a sculpture for the exhibition A Good Age at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey and a film can be viewed on YouTube.
